Bio

My name is Eva Murphy. It is my great joy to be a recognised professional harpist in Sydney. I truly love to perform harp music to enhance any event.

I was honoured to be awarded the title of “#1 Most-Frequently-Hired Harpist In the Nation”, via TheBash website (the most popular site for booking live musicians in the world), for two consecutive years. They also awarded me “#1 Most-Frequently-Hired Wedding Entertainer of Any Kind in the Nation”.

Here in Australia, for the past two years I have been named top wedding harpist nationally by “International Wedding Awards”, which also named me the worldwide winner one year.

I invite you to search for my several wedding harp music videos on YouTube (search YouTube for “Sydney Harpist Eva Murphy”).

Over the years, I have felt so blessed to have acquired hundreds of glowing, positive reviews from my many, many happy clients.

I am pleased to offer a range of truly reasonably-priced harp music packages, designed to suit any budget. I’d love to send you a quote! Please message me, and describe the nature of your event (whether you want music for a ceremony or for a cocktails reception or for a wedding dinner), so I can send you price lists of the various options you can choose from.

I LOVE playing harp music for wedding ceremonies and/or wedding receptions. Wedding music is my specialty. I am degreed specifically in Harp Performance. I am one of very few harpists in the world to have earned my “Wedding MBA” at the annual Top Professional Wedding Vendors Conference in Las Vegas.

I have decades of full-time, steady (nearly-daily) experience performing in some of the top hotels, restaurants and clubs internationally. I play literally all types of music that can possibly be played on a harp. I play the tall Concert Grand harp, as well as other types of harps. I am able to offer you a wide variety of styles of harps to choose from for your event.

I have a harp to perfectly suit any ambience, from an stunning vintage harp coated in genuine 24 karat gold-leaf, to carved wooden harps, to a black-lacquered ebony harp of very sleek, sculptural and modern design, and even a beautiful, tall harp that is designed for playing on a beach, which is resistant to being harmed by saltwater spray. I also play the smaller, enchanting Celtic folk harp.

I offer amplification, if your event requires extra volume.

Here is my partial music list, below. I am aware that there are a few selections here that may not be appropriate for a wedding, but most of these would suit nicely for various types of weddings.
